Thunderbirds sign Van Tiem

By Matt Stefano

Following the acquisition of defenceman Braden King, the Soo Thunderbirds have also announced during Wednesday’s trade deadline day that they have signed 1998 birth year forward Spencer Van Tiem.

The Birmingham, Michigan native played 17 games this season with the NAHL’s Odessa Jackalopes, where he had 0 points and 4 penalty minutes.

Van Tiem, who spent the 2016-2017 season with the T1EHL’s U18 Ohio Blue Jackets U18, scored 5 times and set up 11 others through 32 games and had 16 penalty minutes.

He also lead the Blue Jackets in postseason goals (3) and finished off with 4 points through 4 playoff games.

Van Tiem, who stands 6’1 and 176 lbs, will wear # 8 for the Soo Thunderbirds and will make his debut tonight (Thursday) in their home game against the Timmins Rock at 7:30 p.m. at the John Rhodes Community Centre.
